Overview

A total of eight MINI ALL4 Racing cars will compete in one of the longest and most challenging off-road events in the world: the Dakar Rally.

Originally hosted in 1979, the annual event is classified as a “rally raid” — that is, a long distance, cross-country marathon run held over the course of several days. The Dakar is composed of hundreds of racers in a variety of classes wielding motorcycles, quads, trucks, and cars. It’s a grueling, two-week journey over thousands of miles of rough terrain; an epic test of both mechanical fortitude and human will. Simply finishing the event is a monumental accomplishment.

The original event was a race between Paris, France, and Dakar, Senegal, but organizers moved to South America in 2009 citing security concerns. However, the new location is no less punishing, as the upcoming rally will cover some 9,000 kilometers of dunes, mud, sand, rocks, gravel, and extreme altitudes across Argentina, Chile, and Bolivia.

If you think this sounds like the wrong event for a MINI, you’re incorrect. High-performance versions of the plucky vehicle have a streak going with three consecutive victories between 2012 and 2014. For the 2015 event taking place in early January, a total of eight MINI entrants will attempt to maintain the championship.

“Even with the most outstanding preparation, the Dakar remains a tremendous adventure with unforeseeable challenges and highly demanding tasks that all participants will have to master in order to succeed,” said Jochen Goller, Senior Vice President at MINI, in a press release. “With this in mind, we are more than pleased to enter the 2015 Dakar Rally with a professional, experienced team in our strategic partners of the X-raid Team, a highly competitive driver line-up and a proven winner in the Mini ALL4 Racing.”

Summary

The Mini All4Racing X-Raid is a Class C rally car introduced in the Black Market Update. It requires 20 blueprints to unlock and has a starting rank of Level 6. Oil changes take 20 minutes to complete, and cost Ax credits full 250 per change.

Performance

The X-Raid has a very high top speed, a decent drift radius that can be improved significantly with the use of drift-boosting, and average nitro efficiency. What distinguishes the X-Raid from other rally cars is its unusually powerful nitro, especially when using all-in nitro, propelling the X-Raid from standstill to nearly its top speed in mere seconds. This boost effect gets even more extreme if one drift-boosts the X-Raid, at that point the acceleration becomes absurdly powerful. This acceleration can be taken advantage of at the start of races, where waiting until being able to drift-boost while using all in nitro allows the X-Raid to potentially knock down buggies, rally cars, SUVs, pickups, and even monster trucks on very select circumstances.

Without rank-up tools, the X-Raid's maximum level is 20, where it is one of the best cars to have at that level. It essentially is a direct upgrade to a level 20 Mitsubishi R5 in almost every way with its high speed and acceleration making it a viable choice on the majority of tracks. However, due to the inability to break heavy obstacles and its poor airspeed, it may not be the best option for tracks like Emerald Forest, Urban Playground, or Steel Ruins.

Although a very good rally car at any level, the real power of the X-Raid lies within its level 50 performance. Its aforementioned characteristics are even more extreme here, with it having the best acceleration for a rally car in the game by a significant margin and one of the faster accelerating cars in the game altogether. Its handling is still capable here, with very responsive steering and straightforward drifting to help the X-Raid around tough corners. It also does not lack in the top speed either, as it has one of the highest land-based top speeds in the game.

The displayed and approximate fake speed of the Level 50 All4Racing X-Raid are:
(Speed Modifier is ~95.5% when using the Land Rover Defender as a benchmark.)

  • Top Speed w/o boost: 164.3 mph (~156.9 mph)
  • Top Speed w/ Level 1 long nitro: 175 mph (~167.1 mph)
  • Top Speed w/ Level 2 long nitro: 178 mph (~170.0 mph)
  • Top Speed w/ Level 3 long nitro: 182 mph (~173.8 mph)
  • Top Speed w/ All-in nitro: 204 mph (~194.8 mph)
  • Max Air Speed: 195 mph (~186.2 mph)

Although the long nitro speed is above average for the rally car class, the incredibly high all-in speed is what makes the X-Raid so dominant. Due to the high all-in speed and acceleration, the X-Raid is one of the best cars to use the all-in nitro strategy. If nitro can be maintained throughout the run, it can be 1-2 seconds faster than just using long nitro. The X-Raid is the king and benchmark of straight-line oriented tracks like Coachella Valley and Svalbard, and can still be competent on tracks where rally cars typically don't excel in, like Gobi and Alps. In Detroit however, the surface makes it quite hard to drift well, which hinders the X-Raid's performance.

At level 50, the X-Raid's benchmark performance, short refill time, usability in various time-limited events, effectiveness in multiplayer, and all-around viability on most tracks make it one of the must-have cars at max rank. It is the king of both its archetype and for the entire game, but this comes at the cost of steep upgrade requirements.

Upgrades cost Ax credits full 1,695,400 or Ax tokens full 2,703, 988 blueprints, 661 Class C Tools, and 49 Rank-Up tools.
